Science and Music
The Science, History, and Music of the Concertina

gentlemanThis year is the 200th anniversary of the birth of the inventor of the concertina, the English physicist, Sir Charles Wheatstone, known widely for the “Wheatstone Bridge.” The speaker-musicians will discuss the science and acoustics of the concertina as a “free-reed” instrument, and its history. The presentation also includes a complementary program of music from Victorian England, present-day chamber music, the early twentieth century music hall, and the English Country Dance tradition.
